In place of the ground beef and mozzarella cheese, consider topping this zesty pie with lean ground sausage and cheddar cheese. It tastes just as good.—LaVerna Mjones, Moorhead, Minnesota

"My husband loved this recipe. I changed a few items: I added one envelope of taco seasoning to the ground beef and used cheddar cheese. I have cooked for many years and can read a recipe and know what I should change to make it to my taste.

I will absolutely make this recipe again."

"Really good and easy. Family wants it again. I stirred meat, beans and sauce all together and warmed them in skillet before baking. Used cheddar because that's what I had."

"Great for a quick meal. The hubby loved it. I added 2 Tablespoons of taco seasoning and 1 can of black beans (drained, rinsed) and I mixed everything together instead of layering. I also made them in indvidule casserole dishes. This is a keeper!!"

"I used cheddar cheese and this was very good. Puting chips around the edge as in the picture was a good idea to make it more snackable. Julie, San Diego"
